Creating an Uber Clone with ChatGPT: A No-code Approach

The world of software development is filled with passionate developers spending hours behind screens writing lines of code. But what if there was a way to develop an app without actually writing any code?

In this blog, we’ll delve into how you can use ChatGPT, powered by GPT-4, in conjunction with Back4app to bring an Uber-like app to life without traditional coding

Overview about Uber

Uber has revolutionized the transportation industry with its seamless app, connecting drivers to riders in real-time.

The key features of the app include locating drivers, passengers, and points of interest, often with geo-coordinates to facilitate ride-hailing.

Overview about ChatGPT

ChatGPT, based on the GPT-4 model, is a powerful chatbot by OpenAI. It is capable of understanding human prompts and executing tasks beyond simple conversations.

With the right plugins, such as the Back4app plugin, ChatGPT can perform complex operations like creating apps.

Overview about Back4ap

Back4app is a backend-as-a-service platform. It provides developers with a scalable and extensible backend without the need to handle the infrastructure.

When coupled with ChatGPT, it can dynamically create data structures and operations based on the user’s requirements.

How to create an Uber app using ChatGPT?

Please watch the video below for a tutorial on creating a no-code Uber application.

  • Initiating the Project: Start with activating the Back4app plugin for ChatGPT. Make sure you’re using the GPT-4 model for optimal results.
  • Prompting the Creation of App: Direct ChatGPT by prompting it with the app requirements. For instance, “create a new app in Back4app named Uber clone.”
  • Setting Up Data Structures: Define the entities of the app. For our Uber clone, these include:
    • Drivers and their positions
    • Passengers and their positions
    • Points of interest and their positionsCommand ChatGPT to create these data structures and fill each type with examples. Using real-world locations like New York for generating random positions can provide authenticity.
  • Verification of Creation: Once ChatGPT activates the Back4app plugin and processes the request, you can verify the created structures on Back4app. You should be able to see drivers, passengers, and points of interest populated with data.
  • Operational Queries: Back in ChatGPT, you can perform various operations. For instance, finding the driver nearest to a particular passenger, or calculating the price for a ride considering a set rate per mile.
  • Front-end Integration: While the backend setup and operations are facilitated by ChatGPT and Back4app, you’ll still need a frontend for user interactions. ChatGPT can also assist in constructing the frontend, making the process holistic.


The confluence of ChatGPT and Back4app offers a groundbreaking approach to software development. Without writing a single line of traditional code, apps like an Uber clone can be conceived and operationalized.

As technology continues to evolve, such no-code or low-code platforms may very well shape the future of rapid app development.

For those passionate about app creation but not keen on diving deep into coding, this could be the golden ticket.
